The Phoenix Charter Academy Network
We are seeking college graduates who are interested in making a difference in the lives of students who have previously struggled in school through daily tutoring. The right individual for this year of service will have a fierce commitment to confronting the educational inequality that exists in inner city education today. Because our students are often suffering from years of educational neglect or apathy, our staff must be driven with a sense of urgency and energy.
The 2013-2014 Phoenix AmeriCorps Urban Fellowship will include up to 50 full-time Fellows (AmeriCorps "members"), each working closely with high school students and tutoring them in math, English, and biology.
Every Member's duties will include:
- Approximately 3-4 hours a day:
- Tutoring students in math, English, and biology for the state MCAS exam.
- Mentoring students who have a history of truancy, are former drop-outs, or are court-involved.
- Developing strong relationships with students, parents, and other adult supporters.
- Approximately 1-2 hours a day:
- Assisting teachers in classrooms by working in small groups with special education and English Language Learner students, or providing extra support to struggling students.
- Collaborating with community organizations to ensure student success and retention.
Fellows are expected to be on campus from 7:45am to 6:15pm daily. In addition to these hours, many Fellows choose to lead extra-curricular groups (in the past Fellows have led yearbook, newspaper, language clubs, or sports teams) outside of regular school ours.
Spanish speakers or bilingual candidates STRONGLY encouraged to apply.
